Halotherapy has been around since the 1700s! The first salt cave was opened in Poland by Dr. Felix Boczkowski. The gentleman noticed the salt miners were not susceptible to the black plague that took 50 million lives in Europe and were living longer than the average person. He performed several studies and opened the first salt mine, Wieliczka Salt Mine. The human body is made of salt and it is essential in our bodies for health and wellness.
The cave is kept between 65-67 degrees, fresh blankets are provided, a sweater or sweatshirt are certainly welcome. We do require socks to be worn in the salt cave, or we can give you some very fashionable booties. Please avoid any heavy perfumes and tobacco use.
Each Dry Salt session is 45-minutes and starts promptly on the hour and the Ionic Foot Detox is a 30-minute session, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to check-in. Late arrivers will forfeit their session and will not be refunded.
Based on your condition and symptoms, this can vary. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments. Some individuals prefer to use Dry Salt therapy as a preventative measure.
There are no harmful side effects of Dry Salt Therapy. The treatment is completely natural, one session is equivalent to spending two days at the ocean.
A slight cough or runny nose is possible, some might experience a mild tickle in their throat or an increase in coughing due to excess mucus buildup. This is an indication that salt therapy is working to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.
Processed table salt is related to diet, high blood pressure, and hypertension. Dry Salt Therapy is different, it is associated with the respiratory system. When inhaled the number of micro salt particles entering your respiratory system is extremely low, so it doesn’t present any risk to your health. It kills bacteria, expands airways, and replaces the 87 minerals the body needs.
Only 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride (salt) is used with a Halogenerator, which is the machine used to crush and grind the salt into microscopic particles and disperse it into the salt cave. All clinical studies and research for Halotherapy involve using only 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride. The salt comes from the Earth and the seas and is then processed to remove any debris and contaminants.
